SAYS LINE UP SPIES
AND EXECUTE THEM
Senator Harding Declares That Bomb
and Torch Men Should Be Shot
END SOAP BOX PHILOSOPHY
Says "We Don't Want Government of
Chaotic Russia Tried in
Baltimore, March 3.-A plea for a
place "against the wall" for German,
spies was made here this afternoon
by Senator Harding, of Ohio, in an ad
dress , a patriotic meeting -inder the
auspices of the Maryland brarch of
the Comncil of National Daft rse'. He
also refuted the suggestion that capi
talistic motivos impel the United
States er d her al'es.
"Among us are miserable spies
whom Germany would soon dis;o.e of,
he said. "I honor Germany for it.
The trouble is that we think too much
of ballots and too little of bulwarks
of liberty. In justice to these 100,
000,000 American people there is but
one place for the man with the bomb
and the torch. That place. is against
the wall. We must be for America
"A lot of men in the country have
said this is a capitalistic war. That
is a lie. Capital was making ten times
more before the war than it is mak
ing now. We are taxing capital. What
are we domg for labor?
"No government founded upon soap
box philosophy ever endured. We'
don't want the governtnent of chaotic
Russia tried in the United States.
Sometimes I think that soap box agi
tation is endangering this war."
LUMBER DOING ITS BIT
South Carolina Pine Helping to Win
Southern lumber, the kind that
grows in the State of South Carolina,
is doing its bit.
While men in Washington are not
exactly agreeing over the details, saw
mill men are turning out their maxi
mum of timber and South Carolina
pine is helping. Men ino know have
said there must be ships, and in order
to build ships there must be lumber.
There is no doubt that the piney
woods in this section of the State is
turning out is share of the timber.
Lumbermen declare that never be
fore has there been as much timber
cut. More trees are being felled today
than any other time in American his
tory. "We have been called upon to
help and are trying to deliver the
goods," said one lumberman.
Saw mills are being built far into
the forest and tall pines are falling
beneath the blades or the sawyers.
There are many, many saw mills, and
they are cutting the lumber and the
trains are hauling it to shi yards.
Trees that towered majestically in the
forest a few weeks ago are now tak
ing on the form of ships. It is a fight
for democracy, lumbermen declare.
An illustration of th- splendid work
of the saw mills is given in the con
struction of the thirty-two army
camps in the United States. This took
thousands of feet of lumber. The lun
her had to be obtaine~i and it was
cut and shipped to the sites where the
camps were to be built and a few
weeks later thousands of houses for
the future soldiers of the nation were
"In the same manner," timbermen
declare, "we have been called upon for
more timber. Not for army camps
this time but fur the construction of
ships, ships and more ships. These
ships must be built in order to defeat
the submarine and win the war. We
are loing our best to supply the de

done such good
work for me and I know it will help
others if they will give it a fair trial."
